Serpent carbon plate for LCG chassis

Serpent carbon plate for LCG chassis

Serpent have released this carbon filler plate for use with their new LCG chassis plate that we showed you a while ago. The plate comes with the fastening material to fix it to the chassis and is suitable for mounting in the front of both the SPP chassis as a spare and the latest LCG machined chassis as an optional. What it does is, when in place it stiffens up the front of the chassis, which of course affects the cars handling dramatically.
